I created this blog to keep family and friends at home informed about my daily life in Russia. I also try to include resources that would help someone traveling to St. Petersburg.Feel free to take a look around.
Andrei and I became the parents (officially) of a little boy on July 9, 2012. We'll be back in St. Petersburg in time for the new school year.
I received my residency permit in October 2010 and now have to pass yearly "inspections."
If you want to read more about a missionary's life in St. Petersburg, you can browse past posts. Key posts are linked below. There are also labels and archives further down in the sidebar.

Today I woke up and thought, "I really need to ask the Lord for energy today!" Then I wondered what day it was. How could it be Thursday already? What happened to "Worrisome Wednesday"? Yesterday among my prayer requests there was nothing about motivation. Strange! I think that I was too busy yesterday to think about whether or not I was motivated enough. I'm not sure if that's good or bad. I suppose a day without lethargy, especially in the dreary days of fall, is a triumph.
